Sarah Polley
Country of origin and year
Canada 2012
109 minutes
Rated 12A - Contains one use of strong language and infrequent moderate sex references

Actor and director Sarah Polley’s first feature documentary is a beautifully-structured investigation into the history of her own family – in particular her mother, who died when Polley was eleven. Layering interviews with family members and friends with archive footage and a recording of her father’s witty and revealing memoir, Polley builds up an enthralling collage of fact, hearsay and memory as she strives to find out the truth about her mother, and, by extension, herself.
